Four new Raimondi LR213 cranes for Dubai

Nurol Construction Co, part of the Nurol Group, has recently received four new Raimondi LR213 luffing jib cranes in Dubai. They will be used on a construction project of 27 residential towers overlooking the Arabian Gulf whose completion is planned for August 2021. Three teams were mobilized to carry out the offloading, assembly and installation of the new machines. Two of the new cranes, each with a jib length of 50 meters, are the first-ever Raimondi LR213s to be erected internally in existing structures onsite in the UAE, while the two cranes installed outside of the structures both have jib lengths of 55 meters.

“Raimondi’s Middle East operations team will be performing monthly onsite maintenance, and as part of the overall after sales care package we will later execute the jumping procedure to enable the cranes to reach 150 meters in height,” said Wael Hasan, Middle East Commercial Director, Raimondi Cranes.

“Nurol decided that the Raimondi luffers were the best fit for this job site based on a number of factors including the LR213’s agility and its 14 tonne maximum capacity,” explains Thasin Tahmaz, PTD Manager, Nurol

Two Raimondi luffing jib cranes in action at the Abu Dhabi Corniche

Nurol Construction Co., part of the Nurol Group of Companies uses two Raimondi luffers on the Corniche Tower jobsite in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates. The two machines are the Raimondi LR165, part of Nurol’s existing fleet, with a 55m jib length and a HUH (Height Under Hook) of 45m that will be climbed to 172m and the recently purchased luffer LR213 with a 55m jib length and a HUH of 45m that will be climbed to 187m.

“Raimondi Middle East supported Nurol with the sale of the LR213 equipped with the Deluxe R16 Crane Cabin. As part of the contractor’s fleet upgrade, the luffing LR213 was chosen for its maximum lifting capacity of 14t and its versatility in areas with difficult to obtain fly-over permissions. This jobsite has multiple security restrictions together with an extremely congested set of high rise developments, so much of our team’s support focused on site planning ahead of the installations,” explained Wael Hasan, Middle East Commercial Director, Raimondi Cranes.

Raimondi has provided Nurol with a three day crane operator training sessions and the jobsite is also subscribed to the monthly maintenance program offered by Raimondi Middle East.
